Is there a way to copy components from one Jira project to another and/or import from a text list that does not involve a paid plugin?

I'm copying components from one project to another - manually - and this is painful.  I would love to find a way to just bulk copy the components over, or at least import from a list.  Paid components are not an option.

You could use the CSV import tool to create a bunch of bogus issues with the components you want. It's messy as it leaves behind unwanted issues, but I think it would work.

Any reason why you can't use the the REST api?

Ummm... because I don't know how smile

That's a good reason. It might be worth the time investment if you're going to do that sort of task again. Personally, I use the CLI plugin whenever I can, but it's paid, so sad

For the REST api, you'd need some basic coding skills. Here's something to get you started:

Good luck!

But that only works for Server :(

Martin, what do you mean? 

That if I have got Jira Cloud there is no point in downloading the plugin? 

Just by typing the question I realize that it may very well be the meaning :-)

Anyway, is there really no other options to accomplish this? 

Best,
